Three Bugs with iTunes
January 6, 2010 1 Comment
There are three bugs in the current release of iTunes, they are so glaring I wonder how they got through QA. Maybe Apple has been working hard on the next release so has thrown a junior at the current release.
So here are the three bugs I am running into:
- It no longer automatically synchronizes with my AppleTV when new video podcasts are downloaded, or movies or TV shows for that matter, I always seem to have to sync manually.
- I have podcasts set up so that audio podcasts are placed on my iPod and video podcasts are placed on my AppleTV. iTunes provides a powerful set of controls which allow me to set that up, and it worked for a while, and then something happened. For some reason the podcasts now get automatically deselected from sync after I remove the last episode in it, and I have to manually re-enable sync when new episodes arrive.
- Finally syncing my iPod manually almost always results in either it crashing or iTunes locking up.
I have done a complete reinstall of iTunes, having deleted all preference files, etc… but to no avail.
Apple, what gives??
